Obituary

Diane Wallace Agan (77) of Ormond Beach, Florida passed away February 15th, 2022, with family at her side after a long battle with cancer. This was her fourth and final battle with the disease over the course of her adult life. Diane was born May 12, 1944, near Niagara Falls, New York to George and Mary Wallace. The family relocated to Holly Hill, FL in 1949.

Diane graduated from Mainland High School in 1962 in Daytona Beach, FL. She went on to earn an Associate’s degree in Business from Southwestern Illinois College. She followed that with a Bachelor’s degree in Business at Mckendree College School, Lebanon, IL. and Masters’ Degree in Business Administration from Webster’s University in Webster Groove, MO. Diane was a savvy, knowledgeable, and committed professional. She dedicated her working life to advancing the financial stability and subsequent growth of Southwestern Illinois College, in Belleville, IL. increasing educational opportunities for all in the region. She lived in O’Fallon, IL until seven years ago when she returned to Ormond Beach, FL which she always considered home.

In addition to her educational and professional accomplishments, Diane raised three children alone. Each time Diane survived cancer she lived in its shadow. Her hope, faith, love of life and family illuminated that darkness and the darkness of others in their struggles. Diane fought cancer fiercely and gracefully even with her last breaths. She fought. What propelled her in battles was not just a sense of self but her love and concern for others in her life. Those included family, friends and fellow cancer patients and survivors. Diane enjoyed cooking and entertaining family and friends. She loved raising beautiful Orchids.

Diane believed in being a good Christian and had accepted the Lord as her Savior.

She was preceded in death by her father George Wallace, her beloved mother Mary Wallace; nephew Michael Ausburn, nephew Shawn Ausburn and their father,Jerry Ausburn.

She is survived by her children: James E. (Jing) Agan of Portland, OR, Sheila D. Agan of Ormond Beach, FL, and  Joseph P. Agan of Fayetteville, AR.
